SH Engines Z-Car 1/8 scale Buggy

SH Engines Z-Car 1/8 scale Buggy

Back in September, we mentioned the new Z-car buggy from engine maker SH Engines in China and recently it was announced that Greg Degani would race this car. Now the manufacturer has placed lots of images on their website of the new car and it looks good, with some neat looking features, the most notable of which is the leaned motor that places the engines weight more over the center line. The front of the chassis has a “twin” kickup, the rear suspension has unique semi-trailing/double wishbone configuration and there are 2 braking systems in the car, in the traditional center position but als on another rear brake system mounted on the rear gearbox.

SH Engines Buggy Prototype

SH Engines Buggy Prototype

Chinese R/C engine manufacturer SH is to enter the already crowded 1/8th scale off road buggy market. Pictures of the car were shown on Japanese website RC-Magazine along with a brief introduction, however i couldnt work out anything from what was written so currently we only have the pictures to go by.

UPDATE: We were mailed by a Red RC reader who watched the video and let us know that the car features the engine leaned over a few degrees inboard to bring weight closer to the centre line, the front of chassis has a “twin” kickup, the rear suspension has unique semi-trailing/double wishbone configuration and has a rear brake system mounted on the rear gearbox.
